Brian Jordan Alvarez has starred in comedies like “Will & Grace” and “Jane the Virgin,” but now he has traded in comedy for horror in the new thriller “M3gan.”

The actor talked to KTLA 5’s Dayna Devon about the film and goes on to say how it is actually a “super funny” movie. He explained how the director and producers really made the comedy and horror of the film come together.

“I think I knew the movie had it all, and I was excited to bring my own comedic sense to it,” Alvarez said.

Although there are hints of comedy throughout the movie, the actor said “a lot of the effects are practical” and they even had a doll on set to give the presence of “M3gan.”

“It feels very real when it’s happening,” revealed the actor. “And scary at times.”

“M3gan” is playing in theaters now.
